STC.UNM and the Innovation Academy are hosting their fall 2019 University Center Seminar series. The New Mexico Rainforest University Center provides entrepreneurial training and technical assistance at the University of New Mexico main and branch-campuses. The seminars are free and open to the UNM community and the public via in-person or web access, but registration is required. A certificate program in entrepreneurial capabilities is available to UNM students and community members thru UNM’s Innovation Academy. If interested in the certificate program as part of the seminar series, please contact Cecilia Pacheco at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this workshop, we will discuss the topics outlined in Tamara E. Holmes’ article, Selling Without a Store. In this article, Ms. Holmes writes about pop-up shops, online marketplaces, food trucks, flash sales, and flea markets. Chris will go further and identify permitting/licensing requirements, stress the need for a marketing plan, and demonstrate traditional and social media marketing tactics.
